Allow me to introduce myself…..my name is Julie Pilas and I am an Author, a retired school Administrator, a Weichert Realtor, an owner of a small business and a Pet Professional.
As an owner Our Business is the Elephant Nose Pet Center located just blocks from the Morristown Green. The Elephant Nose is a family owned and operated business, dedicated to the care of pets and proud to be serving the people of Morris County for the past 20 years. Our “Award Winning” services consist of Pet Sitting/walking, Pet Grooming and Pet Training.
Our “Outstanding Pet Services award” was presented to us by the World Pet Association and we are proud to say out of several hundred who were considered it was our dedication, TLC and love of pets that stood out and made us the deserving recipients.
While the Elephant Nose is a retail pet shop it is our Professional Services that have made us a staple of the community. We service some 300 families in the area and because these families have entrusted their beloved pets to us they are not just our customers they are our friends. ….and in some cases they have become very close friends and neighbors.
For us no one pet is alike. When I get a call to sign up a new customer the first question most ask is “What does a pet sitting visit consist of”?....my answer to that is, “You tell me”? Because no one pet is alike my visits are geared toward your individual pet , how they are used to being taken care of and what their needs and wants are. I don’t tell you what I do you tell me.
Being family owned and operated is a major plus in going into your home and taking care of your pet. Because you have not only entrusted your pet to us you have also entrusted your home to us as well and you can be assured if you contract the Elephant Nose as your pet sitting professional there will never be a stranger off the street entering your home and taking care of your pet.
With that said while lots of advertising ads may look professional and leave you with the impression that this pet sitter has to be “Top Notch” it’s not the ads that tell the true story…..instead the best advertising is “Word of Mouth” from that family who has used the Pet sitter before. In the 20 yrs that I’ve been in business it’s always been the “Happy Customer” who has been my best source of advertising.
Certainly in considering a pet sitter all of the above is of the utmost importance and then there’s the question of cost. For us the cost is plain and simply…….One Low Flat Rate! We don’t believe in Nickel and diming our customers. If you’d like us to water your plants, take in your mail, put lights on here and there, set your house alarm or administer meds the cost is the same. No more and no less and you can be assured that we are on call 24/7….if you’re in a bind and need us in a pinch not to worry cause we’ll be there!
